  • Black Americans are twice as likely to know someone who has tested positive or died from COVID-19. Why?
  • Racism, bias, ignorance and misconceptions in medicine and clinical research.
  • New legislation should give the regulatory power needed to incentivize the inclusion of minorities in non-NIH-funded research
  • Q&A
